Hello Couponing to Disney readers! I’m Carrie, vacation specialist with Destinations in Florida, an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner, and I visit you each week here on Couponing to Disney to answer some Disney FAQs. I love hanging out on Couponing to Disney every week with you, answering questions about the Happiest Place on Earth! Even though you are at the most magical place on earth, you still want to practice safety when visiting Walt Disney World. Taking care of yourself, keeping track of your children, and knowing when you need a rest are very important aspects of a fabulous vacation! Safety and wellness at Walt Disney World are essential when visiting the Happiest Place on Earth.
How much walking will I do at Walt Disney World?
A typical park day at Disney will have you walking between 6 and 10 miles! Be sure to pack comfortable shoes, and if you go back to your resort for a mid-afternoon break, it’s a good idea to swap those morning shoes for another comfortable pair in the evening.
If my child is lost, can they be tracked with their MagicBand?
Unfortunately, no. Although the MagicBands are wonderful, they cannot track lost children. If you are concerned, many parents will write their name and phone number with a Sharpie on their child somewhere. You can also order ID dog tags to attach to your child’s shoe. Or, some parents will write their contact information and put it in their child’s shoe.
Can I take a breast pump into the Disney Parks?
Yes, you can. You can easily store it in a locker at the entrance to each park, or place it in the basket of your stroller if you have one. The Baby Care Centers in each park are equipped with private nursing areas, as well as outlets where you can nurse or use your pump. I would suggest taking ice packs along to store your milk during the day so you can enjoy the parks for the majority of the day.
What private locations in the parks can I inject insulin?
The best place to inject insulin is at the First Aid Centers in all the parks. They are air conditioned, they have the proper disposal areas for the needles and other materials, and are easy to find. If you are not near one, a Companion Restroom would be a good second choice.
Where can I get medical care at the Walt Disney World Resort?
Sometimes, you or your family may not feel so well during your Disney trip! Thankfully, the Walt Disney World Resort has fabulous First Aid stations, as well as access to local urgent cares should the need arise. Centra Care is a company that provides shuttles from the parks or resorts to nearby urgent care facilities. If you are concerned or need care, contact the resort front desk, or the First Aid Station in the parks and they will get you on your way to feeling better so you can enjoy your magical vacation!
